, savannah. this was the worst helicopter crash in about four years for u.s. troops. nine troops dead. this happened in zabul province, which is in the south-southeastern section of afghanistan. an area where the taliban controls much of the territory and where coalition forces have been stepping up their attempts to push the taliban out. we are told this crash happened about 4:00 this morning, local time. the military says that there were no reports of enemy fire. that the crash is still under investigation. now, despite the fact that there were no reports of enemy fire, the taliban has called news organizations, including a call here at nbc news in kabul, to claim responsibility for the attack. they say they shot the helicopter down. the taliban often does that, claims responsibility for things that turn out to be accidents. and indeed, most of the helicopter crashes here have turned out to be accidents. maintenance problems, the incredible amount of dust in the air. this is the deadliest year for coalition forces. after today's crash, 525 coalition forces have died this year. 351 o

about jimmy carter that seems to emerge every few years that explain to us why he was beaten so soundly in 1980? >> well, he feels, i think it's safe to say, unappreciat unappreciated -- not underappreciated, unappreciated. as we all know, you don't get to be president by having a deficit of grandosty. right, that's not a qualification for the job. all of these guys have that to some degree or another. some hide it better than others. i think as president carter gets older, he hides it not at all. >> so you're saying, not as as well as others? >> not at all. >> let's put the whole story aut there, for what it's worth. by the way, in washington this morning -- >> begins in plains. >> we have with us, a proposal historian, michael. he said, basically, after these comments aired yesterday, because, you know, president carter is on a media blitz for his book, "white house diary." he says this, what i meant was for 27 years, any carter center has provided me with superior opportunities to do good. >> if we can just say, that is the worst clarification -- >> i'm not going to defend that argum
's terry sanders following the story joining us live from ft. lauderdale, florida. the state with the highest second foreclosure rate since the month of august. what is the situation like? >> i came here as a perfect example. the home over shoulder, these are about $700,000. this one here is in foreclosure. now it's on a short sale. $380,000. this neighborhood was built with, they thought 70 homes. eight are in foreclosure. others in stages of foreclosure. look at the statistics here. it tells you the story of what's going on in the united states. one of every 81 homes in the united states are now in some stage of foreclosure. take a look at the states. nevada, one in 81 in foreclosure. florida, 1 in 155 in foreclosure. arizona, 1 in 165 in foreclosure. when you look at which states are responsible for most of the foreclosures in the country, california, has the greatst percentage. then florida, michigan, illinois and arizona. where i am, i'm in south florida, the statistics are worse, 1 in 111 homes down here in south florida is in some stage of foreclosure. it used to be sh
is parked to the west of us. so they're getting a lot now. that's when this area will be affected. new jersey is expected more rain fall than they got for the entire month of august. they're also expecting high wind gusts of 20 to 30 miles per hour. the wind is picking up a little bit right now. some areas are expecting as high as 50 mile-per-hour gusts. now in terms of flooding, i want to show you quickly the river is right on the other side of these trees right here. it's about 100 feet away. that is prone to flooding. this area here where we're standing is built on a floodplain, so that is a concern here. right now the river is about 10 feet below flood stages when the storm is all said and done it's expected to rise about a foot above flood stage, which would lead to minor flooding. on the upside, this rainfall is a it bit of welcomed relief for an area that's been facing drought conditions for most of the year. new jersey has been under a drought watch for most of september. residents were asked to conserve water. another benefit of the drought when paired with the storm is the wa
as president obama's chief of staff in the senate. white house correspondent is a savannah guthrie joins us now. what is the key impact by rahm leaving and being replaced by pete rouse? >> reporter: it's a real culture shift at the white house. rahm emanuel is a larger than life figure, somebody well known. this is going to be a real difference in style. piece rouse has been with president obama since back in his senate days. he's in old washington hand, been around forforever. he keeps a lower profile, not one of these guys you'll see out at washington parties. doesn't maintain close relationships with washington reporters. i would use the word a beloved figure inside the white house. he's something of a calm erin influence. i'm told by people who have worked with him over the years that he's somebody who has been very strategic and very smart about recruiting top talents. it's kind of a who's who of names in democratic circles. people he's recruited to work for him and anita dun being one of them. he's somebody who has a lot of xperps. he's probably going to be brought in as an acting chief o
'donnell show." they may say give us something to believe in. >> that seems to be the disconnect here. you talk to democrats in washington privately they say a bunch of people sent us to washington to change the place, and maybe they don't see the change yet. they haven't seen these effects. so you see these examples all the time. but look at what the president is doing today. he's in madison. a little bit of a college town, so i've heard. >> that's the word on the street. >> joe biden is at penn state. they're having four or five surrogates all trying to do this. they are finally starting to engage african-americans. the third part of this coalition of surge voters the the youth. >> young people. >> now the question, i believe, posed in the first read as well, will the white house blame the base? if the midterms are a bust? >> no, i think each side has a built-in excuse. the base will say, you didn't give us anything to believe in. the white house will say, you guys are holding us to a ridiculous standard. and this bickering back and forth. the problem is, it's the economy. at the end of the d
word. >> one we should all use today. >> like turning starbucks products into gold. >> or sand. >> i think it is. another great story from the west coast we will be talking about in a little bit. bill clinton, somehow managing to get right smack-dab in the middle of that california gubernatorial campaign. he's not even trying. this guy, jerry brown and bill clinton, these guys just hate each other and impacting that race. >> here's my guess, although bill clinton is now in the middle of that race spiritually, my guess is physically, corporately, he may not be at jerry brown's side campaigning on his behalf before november 2nd. >> jerry brown, i forgot this, he refused to endorse bill clinton in 1992, after clinton had locked down the nomination. >> it's true. >> jerry brown, the first guy to bring up whitewater. jerry brown, a guy that bill clinton, just to set the back story, remember the '92 debate, where clinton gets read -- how dare you attack my wife? before we get to the news. >> it's primary day -- >> hold on. i got you guys some gifts, really quickly. >> oh. >> tuscaloosa. th
journal" poll that 86% of americans think that u.s. companies outsource too much. putting the puzzle together, the republicans don't give a damn. republicans would rather see american companies hire workers in china than give americans, who have, well, nothing. give them a measly $300 check to get them through the next week. the party who pretends to be, let's see, christian, valued, wrap themselves in the flag, and blast these lee greenwood songs along every campaign, really they're just nothing but fraudulent in my opinion. there's nothing more american or christian than helping out your fellow man when they fall on hard times and we're in the midst of hard times. republicans have proven that they have no economic patriotism and only worship at the altar of the almighty dollar. so this election, and we'll talk a lot about this on the march in saturday in washington, this is really about the soul of the country, isn't it? i'm not convinced that it's base versus base because there's a lot of people that are caught in the middle of this economic strife that didn't think that they were
's operated as his father's pawn. he's accusing him of conning us to elect him president. what do you make of newt, howard? >> i've been covering newt for many years. he's a bomb thrower. he's a guy who knows the weak point to attack. what's interesting to me here is he feels free to say anything at this point. it's a kind of free fire zone within the conservative movement. and newt, who's always trying tu say the most outrageous thing and that goes back many, many years, now has moved from saying outrageous things about the ethics of the house members in the democratic leadership 15, 18 years ago, to saying these thin about a man that newt himself has no evidence for what he's alleging here.te he really has absolutely none. his facts are wrong. as mr. weigepointed out on his page and i'm just really not surprised, but kind of depressed by it. >> david, you covered this kind of spiritual territory. ideological territory. he's accusing as basically a zombie. saying his father hated the british white guys. his son is kind of a zombie like figure. in fact governed by a ghost. this is the kind
meetings, town hall meetings and a lady asked a couple of tough questions. one was tell us about your faith. the other was will you eat one of my husband's red hot chilli peppers. >> i think he's been trying to do what we've been talking about which is connect and on different levels where there are questions, he's going there. that connection with the woman on the economy the other day, still sort of reverberates today because it was a seminal moment for this president and this country in terms of how people feel. he's putting himself out there. i commend him for it. i think it's hard for him. >> i think it's very hard for him. you can tell with him answering that question. >> i read the "times" story. as a guy who grew up in a southern baptist church. my parents took me there in the morning. they made me go to training union at night even when the super bowl was on. we were there wednesday night. we were there friday night. i grew up in an evangelical culture. i see you smirking wondering what happened to me. so i look through that statement, and when he says things like, jesus died for m

cannot let the country fall backwards because the rest of us did not care enough to fight. the stakes are too high for our country and for your future, and i will get out there and fight as hard as i can, and i know you will too to make sure we keep moving forward. >> but the president and the democrats have a lot of ground to make up. 34 days until election day. a majority says the country is headed in the wrong direction. republicans are making political hey out of that perception. the political house leader is insisting lawmakers should not leave d.c. until the vote is taken. >> i believe there is a bipartisan majority in the house and senate who want to extend all of the current tax rates. but if democrat leaders leave town without stopping the tax increases, they are turning their backs on the american people. >> joining me now, former san francisco mayor, willie brown, joins me today. >> thank you for having me. >> is the president giving democrats what they need, a common enemy, a leader on the front line urging the troops forward? >> absolutely. as a smater of fact it's his re

% say the country is head in the wrong direction. 32% say the u.s. is on the right track. with that in mind, 46% of likely voters believe the republicans should control congress compared to 43% in favor of democrats. that's within the margin of error and represents a smaller gap than last month when republicans held a nine-point advantage over democrats. this is what they want. 75% want a reduction in special interest influence. 70% want to elect outsiders. 54% want to bring more conservatism to the republican party and 54% want to see repeal of the health care reform. 42% of those say tea party is good for politics. when it comes to the president's job performance, 49% now disapprove of the work he's doing. 46% approve. that number has held fairly steady. more americans have positive feelings toward former president bill clinton than president obama. an amazing number. sarah palin has a favorability rating of 30%, higher than nancy pelosi who rated 22%. with polls showing that young voters likely will not turn out this november, president obama is hoping to fire up the d
